Local Music Aids Local Film: Sub Pop's $10k Gift
Sub Pop has pledged to donate $10,000 to the financially struggling independent film hub, Northwest Film Forum. The donation is a coup for NWFF which reported last month that it must raise $75,000 by Aug. 1 to help off set a 30 percent funding gap.
From the Aug. 5 NWFF blog post by Susie:
I just got off the phone with Megan Jasper over at Sub Pop Records. They have made the extremely generous offer to match all donations that come in to Northwest Film Forum by August 15 up to a total of $10,000. Talk about corporate responsibility! This is fantastic news and puts our total so far at around $27,000. Thank you Jonathan, thank you Megan! Now, dear reader go out and buy the new Fruit Bats CD.
If you’d like to help save one of the Seattle area’s incubators for independent filmmaking, make a donation to NWFF today. They're asking for $10, the cost of an average movie ticket.
